Huh. After applying the patches ap8x.ko is the same in both the old tree from github and openwrt post-patches.

In fact the two trees are almost identical.

Correct, I ran md5sum on the binary on the device and it came up different... it gets stripped going from staging -> build, so my mistake

Tried a couple of things this morning (all connecting to 2.4):
* Switching wdev0 from 11bgnac to 11gn
* Switching wdev1 from 11anac to 11gn (comes up as 11an)
* Disabling wdev1 (doesn't work-- also disables wdev0)
* Dropping encryption
* Other/auto channels (auto doesn't seem to work-- possibly marvel.sh issue)

Also did some googling on the error seen-- I can only find references to it when people are talking about AC support.

Also interesting that that error is showing in the logs given the binary is the same... why now?

Either it was missed earlier or changes to hostapd?  Could have been missed earlier.  Not sure what it is, but it happens on connect, nothing when the connection drops.

I suspected yesterday but wasn't able to try and verify until today. I have one client that doesn't seem to loose its connection at all. Not even when one of my other test machines looses it's connection. I verified both are connecting via 2.4/n

2.4n seemed more stable, but after some time and running high bitrate transfers it would also lock up until reassociating.

I have a few questions about this router before I'll buy it.I want to put OpenWRT on it.I have 1Gbps internet connection on PPoE from RCS&RDS(Romanian ISP).How is the support for this router does work HW NAT(hardware acceleration),IPv6,how is the USB support(what read,write speeds do you get?).Does Wi-Fi(N and AC) work  and its stable

Not sure it's (entirely) related to bitrate-- the machine that consistently locks up isn't doing much-- certainly not over 1MB/s.

I've been on the Attitude Adjustment prebuilt binary, and it's been pretty stable.  The only 802.11ac device I have is a Nexus 5 and I can run Speedtest several times without disconnects.

Thats /some/ good news. smile

Sounds good, I still don't own a wrt1900ac, (hopefully soon)

The fastest NIC I run on my LAN is only 2.4n, so could not test AC anyways, unless I get a 802.11ac NIC.

Sill running strong with 2 WRT54GL's and 1 D-Link 615, the D-Link is a N radio.


2.4n for me is fine for now. smile

Looks like they've re-arranged the GitHub repo and now the source ready for building is stored in a private repo: https://github.com/wrt1900ac/opensource/issues/4

Now why do suppose they did that?

No idea, but it's rather annoying because they're telling us to email them for access, but not providing an email address to email them at.

What what speeds?  Only get the issue with 70-80+mbps transfers here.

Downloaded iPerf and ran a few tests between my wired PC and the Nexus 5, getting between 167Mbps to 178Mbps.  I'm able to run the tests 5 or 6 times with no disconnects.

Looks like they've re-arranged the GitHub repo and now the source ready for building is stored in a private repo: https://github.com/wrt1900ac/opensource/issues/4

Clone OpenWrt from the given commit hash and apply their patches. Not sure what is in the private repo but a workable (minus the wifi drops) image can be built that way.

ancient bug fixed over a year ago sad

Looking at the backtrace, it's reading from a sysfs file which is causing the lockup when querying the mvnet driver in mvneta_get_stats64

Hey, I've read through these forums and several other tutorials for unbricking the WRT1900AC but none have resulted in any progress.
My Situation:
     I tried to update the firmware on my router to a version of BATMAN meant for the WRT54G series, but when I tried to update the firmware it never finished and threw me an error saying the firmware didn't install properly. Ever since I have been unable to access my router at all. It is labeled as an Unregistered network on my computer when I hook up to it, and the router has no default gateway or ip address assigned to it.

Any suggestions would be helpful, I am unsure if it is even bricked because nothing any website says will work.

For reference for those hanging out here, can you share the links you've found for unbricking the WRT1900AC?

And did you see nyt's post on the first page about switching to the alternate firmware? If that doesn't work, you likely are going to need to get handy with some serial work.

As a side note, I think they really need to review /lib/upgrade/platform.sh. They are updating the boot partition before the flash-- which seems like it should be *after* the flash has been confirmed as successful. Wish they'd respond to my question on github to where issues can be reported.

Say, are you running their latest build?

No but yes. Compiled my own image based on their patches (and some of my own). Was running originally from that git commit hash but have been experimenting with the git head since then.... wifi doesn't work, likely due to the binary being kernel specific but have been testing other things most recently. I had been running their previously posted image for Barrier-Breaker-- not sure if anything had changed-- looks like they just renamed and moved the file.

Ok, thx!

Got my wrt1900ac today smile

Think I'll just use the OEM firmware for now

BTW

Hope they get the driver for the Marvell 802.11ac wireless chipset problem fixed soon.
